Asked if he was surprised, Ganguly said: “No, no, why would I be surprised? Bangladesh have played good cricket and qualified to the semifinals on their own merit. I am very happy for Bangladesh. It was a great battle between Bangladesh and Mew Zealand here in Cardiff. They also have to put up similar perormance against India, otherwise they will not be able to get the better of India.”
The ‘Prince of Kolkata’ also believes India will have 70 percent chance of winning against Bangladesh in the semifinal, and he predicted an India-England final.
“India’s possibility of winning is 70 percent. And definitely I would like to see India win. But Bangladesh always play very well against India. Even in the last World T20, they came so close to beating India. I still don’t get it how Bangladesh did not win the match.”
